Civil Rights icon: Trump's profane comments about immigrants were 'despicable'

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue, who've been close allies to the president on the issue of immigration, were in a White House meeting with him Thursday when Trump, according to sources, expressed frustration with people coming to the USA from "sh-hole countries". Apparently, he was so frustrated with the U.S.'s lottery system that he demanded to know why other Americans would want people coming over from "shithole countries", like Haiti, El Salvador and various African nations.

Controversy is swirling about claims that President Donald Trump made a vulgar comment about struggling countries and their immigrants.

President Trump tweeted he never said anything derogatory about Haitians, other than Haiti is a very poor and troubled country.

"It's a constantly moving number", said Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown , adding that he expected the death toll to rise. The mudslide swept through the coastal community of Montecito on Tuesday morning, catching numerous victims entirely off-guard.

The Republican president has also privately defended his remarks, saying he was only expressing what many people think but will not say about immigrants from economically depressed countries, the Associated Press reported. "Why do we want people from Haiti here?"

"We were deeply disturbed and offended by President Trump's remarks regarding Haiti and African countries", the Democrats said in a joint statement. At a meeting discussing immigration with U.S. Senators, Trump referred to developing nations with brown-skinned citizens as "shithole countries", according to multiple sources.

His promise is now in question after the comments allegedly made during a private immigration meeting with lawmakers.

What can be done? With most utilities out of commission or about to be cut off, staying behind was not an option for many. Search and rescue crews recovered the body of Morgan Corey, 25, who was found in debris near Mill Road about 9 a.m.

Haitian President Jovenel Moise's government issued a strongly worded statement denouncing what it called a "racist" depiction of Haiti. "Nothing that Donald Trump says can change that".

The president implied Friday morning on Twitter that maybe he should start recording meetings because there is no trust.

Trump reportedly became frustrated during the Oval Office meeting, asking: "Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?". "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime. countries which are doing badly". I will not be diverted from all possible efforts to continue negotiating to stop the deportations.

County emergency manager Jeff Gater said officials decided not to send one sooner out of concern it might not be taken seriously. The disaster was already unfolding when Santa Barbara County officials sent out their first cellphone alert at 3:50 a.m.

Hillary Clinton, Trump's defeated presidential rival, tweeted: "The anniversary of the devastating quake 8 years ago is a day to remember the tragedy, honor the resilient people of Haiti, & affirm America's commitment to helping our neighbors".
